SSH Tectia

Using the OpenSSH known_hosts File

SSH Tectia Client 5.1 (and later) supports also the OpenSSH-style known-hosts file that contains the public key data of known server hosts. The location of the file must be defined in the ssh-broker-config.xml file by using the known-hosts element. For example:

  <known-hosts path="/u/username/.ssh/known_hosts" />

The file is never automatically updated by SSH Tectia Client. New host keys are always stored in the SSH Tectia $HOME/.ssh2/hostkeys directory.

The hostname(s) in the file must be in clear-text format. Hashed hostnames are not supported.
